Bombshell alert! The WCA has just put together an absolutely incredible match. They've got Jeremy "Half-Man, Half-Amazing" Williams going against Rick "The Jet" Rufus in the main event of their upcoming show on May 8th in Atlantic City. This fight is obviously going to be a explosive slug-fest. Rufus is a former kickboxing champion and Williams is a former boxing champion. Can you say fireworks? Gary Marino, the matchmaker for the WCA, is already legendary for putting together some historic MMA matches, including Kimbo's debut against Ray Mercer.  Now he's done it again. Marino knows that pitting two pure strikers against each other with four ounce gloves is a recipe for nitroglycerin. And with Williams and Rufus, it's not just pure strikers going at it, it's  championship level strikers.  Can you say boom? But the card doesn't stop there. Also featured will be Deividas Taurosevicius vs. Dwayne Shelton, which is another great match up, style-wise. Not to mention many local favorites on the card including Tom Gallicchio, Kevin Roddy, Mike Medrano and many others. The WCA's first event, back in February, was as stacked as the arena was packed, and this time promises to be no different. Marino and WCA President Derek Panza are looking for the WCA to be much more than just a local show and their production and matchmaking proves it. Of course, the card is subject to change and all bouts must be approved by the NJSACB, but as it stands right now, we'll be seeing The Jet vs. Half-Man, Half-Amazing, which is a fight that's going to be all-amazing.  How can it not be with that kind of firepower? I'll have much more on the main event and the other fights in the near future, including exclusive interviews with the fighters and Gary Marino as well.  You can also check out the WCA's website for more info.
